Hello fellow bizarrists,

I've been away for some time...part self-imposed and part "Café ban."
I've still been around, just saying less.

I feel I need to break my silence to let you know of a new bizarre release.

Steve (creator of the Kn0wing G@me and Witch Hazel) just released a new effect that may be of interest to our community.
If you have purchased from Steve in the past, you may have received an e-mail announcement. But, for those of you that are in the dark....behold:

The Carnie Box, A folk-art vintage matchbox full of small unique objects with a back story centered around a rare Carnie ritual; although, other presentations are possible as well.

It is available only at the big auction site. It can be found in the Bizarre magic section, If you search "The Carnie Box," it should come up.

From the e-mail announcement:

One of the many presentations possible:

In American carnie culture, particularly in the Midwest, each traveling show had one person, one shaman, one medicine man: one so revered, that his or her word was *the* word, almost religious in nature. Many times, they were known simply as 'the Elder', though in outside circles they are referred to as 'the Elder Carnie'.

When a young carnie, maybe a recent home run-away, wanted to join the ranks, the Elder had the final say. When such a young carnie needed advice, the Elder would provide. At the age of 22, every carnie would approach the Elder for what many carnivals referred to as "the entrance."
The Elder would speak:

"As you enter the carnival of life, young one, you must be prepared. Not to choose a path - for it has been chosen for you - but to *know* your path. Are you ready to know your path?"

The Elders sun withered hands would then place a small mysteriously decorated matchbox before the initiate, removing three small objects.
And the ceremony would commence...

My opinion...You really should go over to the big auction site and check this out!

Already purchased as soon as I woke up this morning to that pleasant email from Steve. Looking forward to receiving as Steve does such a fantastic job on making both his storylines & props as authentic as possible to create a wonderful effect !

Nice to see you back RS !

I nabbed one too...tempted to get more than one for the price, but that wouldn't be fair as he is only putting out 50, and then no more. And he means it.

This looks like the same superb quality of props we've come to expect from Steve...a mix of real and made-to-look real artifacts that jell perfectly to form a bit of bad business. The clown drawing sold it for me. Nightmarish on its own.

Multiple outs, so one can concentrate on the presentation. My favorite!

Mr. Peebles is not prolific, but dang he's good...

I didn't get the email. Weird since I was one of the purchasers of the You-Know-What Game.

Feeling like a red-headed step-child now... Smile

What is the website for this? Or is it just one of those "if you know then you know" situations? You guys are being awfully cryptic for an apparent must own piece of bizarre magic.

Knowing the other offerings from Steve, I'm surprised they all are not sold. Like the ad says, "You can pay me now or pay me later!" And usually later is a lot more.

Has anyone else in the UK tried to purchase through eBay? The system tells me it’s unable to post to my address. I have emailed Steve back for help but am looking for suggestions as I don’t wanna miss out

I know steve is using the Ebay to give buyers security with they're purchase, but I would be fine buying from him directly as he's a trusted seller for me. I'm sure steve will work something out for you.

Have you thought about picking it up over here? Would be a goo vacation and all tax deductible if you are a performer.

Love effects like this. When you give the spectators a choice, it’s always a fun time.
